The truth is you don’t need all this gear.
You only need a good laptop & headphones and you’re set to WORK.
Getting fancy things is “nice” but they’re just luxury items that’s a want and not a need.
So for those who are just starting off their journey: “Get good before you get fancy. Never do it the other way around.”
Get to work, get noticed for the quality of your work and everything else will eventually make its way to you.
I’ve lived those words and still have to remind myself of those lessons today – keep it simple. Hope this advice helps one of you save money and more importantly, time.
